RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

Firearms and laws regarding them.

What does SS think about firearms? Personally, I already own a few of them and when I turn twenty-one you can be assured that I'll be packing open (and concealed)... I wouldn't open carry, but it makes a statement that guns shouldn't be feared and that Americans are free to fucking carry them, so I'm going to...

If I had the money, I'd buy myself an AK-47 right the fuck now... But, alas, I'm jobless and I need my measly birthday funds for other things...

RE: Firearms and laws regarding them.

I have money saved up for a couple of firearms once I turn 18 next year. It's too bad I live where I do, because any form of weapon carry is illegal. At least I can still buy guns unlike some countries, but I just can't bring them around. I already checked the process to obtain firearms here in Vancouver and it's simple enough, albeit slightly expensive and a waste of time.

For now, I'm spending my time collecting folding and fixed-blade knives among other tactical gear. It's a fun hobby.

RE: Firearms and laws regarding them.

Well you guys probably know my opinion. Guns are awesome when respected and in the hands of an intelligent person. I want some FN guns really bad. I hate NJ I can't wait to move to Pennsylvania, Delaware, or New Hampshire. I refuse to register.

RE: Firearms and laws regarding them.

US laws (the good ones) regarding firearms and self-defense would be the only reason I'd pack my bags and move to America. What I wouldn't give to buy a gun without being harassed by paperwork...

New Hampshire:
Quote:No license is required to openly carry a firearm while on foot, but carry of a loaded pistol or revolver in a motor vehicle, openly or concealed, does require a license. New Hampshire has no laws restricting the age at which a person may possess and carry firearms.
Sounds like a dream. Had I been born in NH, I would have dozens of firearms right now. Damn these Canadian laws.

It'd make for a good camera shot, but not horribly practical for actual shooting.

I'm neutral. Guns have advantages and disadvantages. Im not going to be in some one's face for not liking guns, but Im not gonna try to take away anyones right to have one.

RE: Firearms and laws regarding them.

When I was younger and I still believed in gubment, I thought that guns should be illegal and the gubment should just put a lot of resources into eliminating them. But now I realize that that would never work and anyway we need to be able to protect ourselves against the gubment, as well as against random intruders or whatever, so I am in favor of people being allowed to have guns, though I do not like them myself.

Firearms and laws regarding them.

I do not think "GUNS ARE TEH SHIT",nor do "I fucking hate guns" fail poll is fail.

Hidden stuff:
"CONSENSUAL incest is not wrong. (Abuse victims: being abused by a relative does not make it wrong for others to have consensual incest, any more than rape by a stranger makes all sex wrong. Sex and assault/molestation are two different things.) An aversion became common in humans that aided in population growth as one disease couldn't wipe out the human race. That's not a problem anymore.

Consensual incest is very common. You know people who have been involved, whether you know it or not.

There is no rational reason for keeping laws or taboos against consensual
incest that is consistently applied to other relationships. Personal disgust or religion is only a reason why one person would not want to personally engage in what I call consanguinamory, not why someone else shouldn't do it. An adult should be free to share love, sex, residence, and marriage with ANY consenting adults. Youthful experimentation between close relatives close in age is not uncommon, and there are more people than you'd think out there who are in lifelong healthy, happy relationships with a close relative. It isn't for everyone, but we're not all going to want to have each others' love lives, now are we? If someone thinks YOUR love life is disgusting, should you be thrown in prison?

Some people try to justify their prejudice against consanguineous sex and
marriage by being part-time eugenicists and saying that such relationships inevitably lead to “mutant” or “deformed” babies. This argument can be refuted on several fronts. 1. Some consanguineous relationships involve only people of the same gender. 2. Not all mixed-gender relationships birth biological children. 3. Most births to consanguineous parents do not produce children with significant birth defects or other genetic problems; while births to other parents do sometimes have birth defects. 4. We don’t prevent other people from marrying or deny them their reproductive rights based on increased odds of passing along a genetic problem or inherited disease. It is true that in general, children born to consanguineous parents have an increased chance of these problems than those born to nonconsanguineous parents, but the odds are still minimal. Unless someone is willing to deny reproductive rights and medical privacy to others and force everyone to take genetic tests and bar carriers and the congenitally disabled and women over 35 from having children, then equal protection principles prevent this from being a justification to bar this freedom of association and freedom to marry.

Some say "Your sibling should not be your lover." That is not a reason. It begs the question. Many people have many relationships that have more than one aspect. Some women say their sister is their best friend. Why can’t their sister be a wife, too?

Some say “There is a power differential.” This applies least of all to siblings or cousins who are close in age, but even where the power differential exists, it is not a justification for denying this freedom to sex or to marry. There is a power differential in just about any relationship, sometimes an enormous power differential. To question if consent is truly possible in these cases is insulting and demeaning.

Some say “There are so many people outside of your family." There are plenty of people within one’s own race, too, but that is no reason to ban interracial marriage. So, this isn't a good reason either. Let consenting adults love each other the way they want!"-Keith Pullman

I mean the UK banned guns and their gun violence is WAY low. Guns do not make people safer

I do say that in the hands of an intelligent and responsible individual, guns can be a useful asset and an effective self defense tool. However, they are too easy to get into the hands of killers and terrorists.

well would you look at the time its time to gay
